Bobby Bare Jr. makes Alaska swing

Posted on September 10, 2013 

Alaska gigs start in Healy on Sept. 12.


Almost under the radar, Bobby Bare Jr. - something of an alt/country/folk cult figure - is performing around Alaska. He's the son of country/pop singer Bobby Bare, whose memorable songs include "Detroit City," "500 Miles Away from Home," "How I Got to Memphis," "Four Strong Winds" and a number one hit, "Marie Laveau." 

Bare Jr. will either be performing solo or with his ever-changing band the Young Criminals Starvation League, at the Salmon Bake in Healy on Thursday, Sept. 12, as part of the Monolith Music Showcase at Tap Root in Anchorage on Friday and Saturday, the Fairview Inn in Talkeetna on Wednesday, Sept. 18, then to Fairbanks for shows at the Marlin on Sept. 20 and at the UAF Pub on Sept. 21. 

Tickets for the Tap Root show, which will start at 9 p.m.  both nights, are $10, or $15 for both nights. Others on the Monolith lineup include Historian (Friday), Emma Hill and Jack River Kings (Saturday).
